This is the debut release from Russian post metal band Neko Nine. The memorable first album 'Summer is you' shows the unique results of the experimentation to explore new possibilities of post rock sounds.
This fourteen songs album is filled with pure energetic guitar sounds and emotional melody lines. Onto the atmospheric sound space, the accurate drum beats thunder. And the beautiful visualised vivid music expand. Sometimes sentimentally. Sometimes wildly. Higher and higher. Deeper and deeper.
It contains the four remastered / reproduced old Neko (the precursor of Neko Nine) materials as the bonus tracks. These four songs originally released from Russian netlabel Mimonot in April 2010. The people who surely remember Neko's briliant EP probably discover some differences in this 2011 version of 'My Stars'.
This is the second release from mini netlabel Mizou. As long as the music flows, this journey continues.
Neko Nine is the one-man-band from Yaroslavl, Russia. The only member of this band is Seva “Neko” Shaposhnikov. Music by Neko Nine combines post-metal, post-rock, hardcore, rock-ambient, electronic.
Neko Nine project started in 2009. At that days Seva played in punk and alternative rock bands but he wanted to do some instrumental music. In spring 2010 he released the “My stars” EP as Neko. These 4 post-rock tracks were taken with favor by the auditory and made Neko known. After that the project was hold up for about a year. In spring 2011 Seva continued producing instrumental tracks and started planning a long play album.
“Summer is you” came out more emotional and hard. In fact it is rather post-metal than post-rock. The album consists of two parts: 10 new tracks in the first one and 4 remastered tracks from “My stars” EP in the second. - Seva (Neko Nine)
